'Grinch' caught on video stabbing Frosty the Snowman inflatable

FOX 32 NEWS - A Missouri man has started a GoFundMe for his inflatable Frosty the Snowman’s medical costs after surveillance video shows a vandal stabbing a hole in the lawn decoration.

"We could see a pickup truck come down the street- down the alley here- a passenger jumped out you can see him run up to the snowman here and shank it, try to cut the rope and then he took off went back to the truck and took off it was pretty quick" owner Jeff Diggs told KTVI. "It looks like a couple of kids just having fun.  While it might be fun to you it hurts other people."

Diggs posted the surveillance video to social media in hopes of identifying who he calls the “Grinch.”

Diggs created the GoFundMe for Frosty’s medical expenses, but he says he doesn’t intend to raise money and that it’s all in good fun.

"I wrote it from a humor perspective to kind of make me feel better about what had happened and there’s a lot of outrage you can tell people are outraged you can tell people are disgusted about what took place the senselessness of it," Diggs told KTVI.

Any money raised on GoFundMe for Frosty will be donated to Judge Joe Murphy's annual kids in need charity, according to KTVI.
